After overcoming a few hurdles, I was able to install the trial system sucessfully (although due some ambigous parts in the documentation).
Finally I tried to follow the guide (btw on https://blogs.sap.com/2019/10/01/as-abap-7.52-sp04-developer-edition-concise-installation-guide/ there are some dead links) on https://assets.cdn.sap.com/sapcom/docs/2019/09/32638f18-687d-0010-87a3-c30de2ffd8ff.pdf - on page 26 for turning off auditing:
sp_configure, 'auditing', 0
results in an error:
Msg 10331, Level 14, State 2: Server NPL, Procedure sp_configure, Line 1310: Permission denied, database master,
owner dbo. You need the following permission(s) to run this command: MANAGE SECURITY CONFIGURATION (return status = 1). ASE Version is 16.0 SP03 PL06
As in the guide recommended, I switched to sybnpl and executed isql - Usapsa -X SNPL.
How can I fix this or are there other ways to improve performance?
Thanks a lot,
